Lumiere - What Do You Think?

OK, when you first hear “Lumiere” you think of the candelabra on Disney’s Beauty and the Beast, don’t you? But I also saw it on a girl on a Japanese cartoon. In case you don’t know, it’s pronounced loo-mee-air, and it means “light.” I think it’s pretty, distinctive, and different. It’s not likely that I would ever name one of my daughters this name (middle name, maybe?) but it’s not a name somebody would forget if I did. It could be used in a sibset of French word names, with her siblings being [name]Roux[/name], [name]Bijou[/name], [name]Bleu[/name], [name]Elle[/name], [name]Fleur[/name], [name]Jolie[/name], [name]Reine[/name], etc.
What’s your opinon?

To me, lumiere is a French word, not a name. A sibset of French words as names would be extremely cheesy and it’d be hard to take seriously in a French speaking environment. You could use [name]Lucy[/name], [name]Lucia[/name], [name]Lucerne[/name], [name]Lucienne[/name], or others all meaning ‘light’.

The Beauty & The Beast connotation is very strong, and since it comes from a children’s movie, I don’t see it going away. It has a pretty sound and meaning, but I think it would be best safely tucked in the middle!

I have to agree with Irisrose, lumiere is a French word meaning “light”. If you are intent on using it, please choose it for a middle name with all of the other French names you stated in your post.

I had “Be Our Guest” stuck in my head earlier today for no apparent reason. Lumiere is all candle.
